    We live in a quite village of Cloyne with a limited daily bus service. Our nearest town Midleton ( 10 minute drive) has good regular bus and train services, cafes, shops, library and all essential amenities. The beautiful lively Cork city is only 30 mins drive away with lots of tourist attractions.
    Our son's is at a very busy inquisitive stage so needs a lot of supervision and patience they are very happy boys once kept active and playing. Having three boys under 6 years of age makes our home very busy , sometimes noisy/crazy😆 but happy. Contact us if you are willing to join the madness 😄
